My husband's family built this home in Santa Rosa Beach years ago and have enjoyed it to the fullest. The beaches are amazing with the white sugar sand and memorable sunsets. We truly love this area and I know that your family will love it too.

Lisa purchased this house in 1978

The beaches are some of the most beautiful in the world.

The family has loved relaxing on the beach and enjoying the emerald coast. The sand is sugar white, like none we have ever seen. We love to ride bikes around the neighborhood or to the quaint village of SeaSide, the bike trails are virtually endless. Please let us know if you are interested in renting bikes and we will provide a list of great companies.

GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
My family rented both sides of this home (Papa's Port & Lucy by the Sea) for a whole week. We had a great time! The owner of the home went above and beyond to be sure our vacation was fantastic. We cannot say enough about the location of the home - just perfect to please everyone in our large group. Super close to the beach/water for day visits and a great view from house - yet nice to have a pool for the kids in the evenings when mom and dad are ready for a break!

HEAVEN ON EARTH

  • 5 of 5
We rented this for our minister during my daughters wedding and they described this as heaven on earth. Sitting on the front porch with coffee in the morning listening to the ocean was amazing.

The place was a good location to the beach, and close to great restaurants. The kitchen supplies were a little lacking though (not even 1 potholder). Also, we couldn't be in the shower very long before running out of hot water for just two people!

Owner's Response: All kitchen items were just cleaned out and items replaced, including new pot holders and trivets. Our plumber has been called to evaluate the hot water heater, as this is a new issue (first mention) that will be resolved immediately. We invite our renters to personally let us know immediately of any opportunities to make them as comfortable as possible.

The house seemed nice in the pictures. When you get there, it's a bit run down. It could definitely use an outside paint job (which is fairly inexpensive & easy to do) because it looked shabbiest in the block. The pool and whirlpool did not look clean so we never went in. The whirlpool is misleading as we thought it was a hot tub when we rented it. It's not. It doesn't heat up. Just bubbles which didn't bother to turn on since we weren't getting in. Both bedrooms are upstairs although one of the two bathrooms is downstairs. So since we had two couples, one couple had to go downstairs to shower etc. Somewhat inconvenient, especially since the upstairs toilet wasnt working correctly the first night so we couldn't use it. All in all, I didn't feel the house was worth what we paid for it unfortunately. With a few changes it could be.

Owner's Response: Papa's Port is a 2 bedroom(both upstairs) house with an amazing location to the gulf. The house is older and the outside is being painted winter 2013-14. The renters notified me that the upstairs toilet was running the evening upon their arrival and it was repaired the next day. There are 2 full bathrooms, one upstairs (access from the master and hall) and one downstairs. The pool is serviced weekly by an impeccable pool company and the water usually looks wonderful. We were not notified that the pool looked unclean, as that would have been addressed immediately. I did contact the pool company upon reading this review to verify that there had not been any storms or issues and there had not. The picture of the pool can look deceiving, as there is a round sitting area with jets. However, this area is not separate from the pool and is not a hot tub. Unfortunately, a hot tub is not an amenity to the property.

GOOD OVERALL, SOMEWHAT DISAPPOINTED

  • 4 of 5
The Positives: great view, <100 yards to waters edge, great location of Gulf Trace, clean home, plenty of towels
The Negatives: poorly equipped (no pot holder, no cleaners, no measuring cup, one dish drying towel, no scubbing pads to scrub pots/pans, no salt/pepper, no griddle for pancakes) , cable went out a couple of times, internet is spotty at best, and the router is in the adjoining unit. They were willing to reset it every couple hours. Looks dumpy from the outside, but inside was a bit better....needs paint! Had to hook up DVD player ourselves, remote didn't work. Lock box holding key to house is very difficult to open and close. We love to cook most meals and usually grill outside a lot, but only grilled once since it was old, charcoal grill.
Overall, not sad that we rented here, but would look elsewhere next year. Price was good, but not that much better than nearby homes/condos. Love Grayton Beach and Gulf Trace....met lots of nice people. Still had a great time being outside in beautiful weather!

Owner's Response: The view and the location are truly fantastic. The kitchen was inventoried in July and apparently some items have gone missing. All items (hand towels, pot holders, measuring cups, scrubbing pads and a griddle) are being replaced as we speak. Unfortunately, on the rare occasion the modem/router has to be reset. However, during this referenced time period the cable company finally verified that there was area issue in service for approximately 24 hours. The wireless internet is normally without any issue. We will be placing separate routers in each unit to ensure that Papa's Port guest can reset if needed. The grill was purchased 2 months ago, but it will be re-evaluated promptly. The whole duplex is scheduled to be painted this winter as the salt air is brutal on the outside.
